ONLINE CLASS: Connecting with the Natural World: Elemental Landscape 

Getting outside offers us the chance to be inspired by the beauty of the world around us. This month-long on-line landscape sketching workshop is done on your own terms, from your window, in your backyard or further afield. Your visual interpretation of the landscape will be supported by weekly on-line demonstrations covering key concepts related to creating successfully expressive landscape imagery. Prompts related to simplification, structure, compositional dynamics, creating depth, value and a limited palette will be offered each week. Meditative journaling exercises will deepen your connection with a sense of place. Weekly sharing of imagery, supportive dialogues and suggested readings will strengthen your interpretation of the landscape in any medium. All levels of experience welcome.

ONLINE CLASS: Working in Series with Christopher Volpe

ONLINE CLASS: Working in Series with Christopher Volpe

Fridays from 1:30-4:30 on Zoom

October 2 - October 30

Artist: Christopher Volpe

This class is about discovering how working in series can clarify your artistic voice and deepen your creative practice. You will explore key principles of design as you develop a personally meaningful theme during class and move quickly into generating visual ideas and new directions. This class is structured to get you motivated and moving, and to break you out of old patterns and thought-feelings that might be holding you back. The ultimate goal is to help you discover your “voice” and to create strong and meaningful art with originality and feeling.

Most of your series building work will be done out of class. We’ll use our class time for lessons, demonstrations, discussions, and critiques, and then you’ll go off and make your paintings. We will also use a private Facebook group page for sharing our images.

Over the next five weeks, you will make 18 small paintings and three larger works answering to the definition of a series = a body of work uniform in size, orientation, materials, and ideally (but not necessarily) theme.

Mondays from 11am-3pm

October 5- November 16 (class WILL meet on October 12, Columbus Day)

ALL LEVELS

MEDIUMS: OILS AND WATERCOLOR

Capture the beauty of fall in Concord while painting outdoors with master plein air painter, Caleb Stone.  Colorful specimen trees, Walden Pond and the surrounding woodlands, sweeping marshes, peaceful riverside scenes, Sleepy Hollow and the charming downtown area offer many wonderful locations to paint.  Caleb will guide you on how to choose your own fall palette and how to develop a composition with good values and a strong design with contrast and color harmony.  Each class will begin with a demonstration, leaving plenty of time for painting and individual instruction.  A constructive group critique will be offered at the end of the class.  Students will meet outside at Concord Art and caravan together from there.  All safety protocols will be observed.  Students and Teacher will wear masks at all times and keep a safe distance from each other.   Caleb will conduct this class via Zoom if weather does not allow for outdoor teaching.

ONLINE CLASS: Color and Light En Plein Air - PREPARING FOR PAINTING OUTDOORS

ARTIST: Jill Pottle

MEDIUM: Acrylic and Oils

Tuesdays, October 6, 13, 20, 27

from 10:00am-1:00pm

Virtual weekly online class 

A real-time class through Zoom starting at 10AM

In this class we will work from fall photos and use these to evaluate the landscape. Learn to break down the landscape to understand the light, color relationships and learn how to simplify form. Painting outside students will gain a greater understanding of value and color. Jill will help you learn how to design, simplify and get down a landscape within 2.5 hours at the most. When you go outside the light is changing, the wind is blowing, so you will learn what to do to make decisions to make a successful painting. Students will learn how to simplify and get ideas down fast, decisive and with confidence. The class will also address equipment. There will be crits and historical references given.

ONLINE CLASS: Cut. Paste. Construct. The Figure. with Nancy Gruskin WEDNESDAYS! (FULL)

ONLINE CLASS: Cut. Paste. Construct. The Figure.

ONLINE A Real-Time Class with Live Model Through Zoom Video Meeting

Artist: NANCY GRUSKIN

Medium:  Collage & 3D Paper and Cardboard Constructions

SIX-WEEK CLASS

Wednesdays, 1 pm to 4 pm

October 7 - November 11, 2020

A REAL-TIME CLASS WITH LIVE MODEL THROUGH ZOOM VIDEO MEETING.

Working from a clothed model posing live on Zoom, we will make cut-paper and cut-cardboard collages and paper and cardboard constructions of the figure.  Prior to each meeting with the model, the instructor will introduce the week’s exercises by email and give a detailed list of supplies needed for the session (see the supply list linked below for an overview).  At the beginning of each live model session, the instructor will briefly review the exercises for the day before turning the screen over to the model, who will hold short and long poses, depending on the exercises for that day.  Exercises will encourage you to focus on shape and to experiment with materials and color.  In addition to the sessions with the model, this class will include two meetings to “check in” and discuss the work made in previous weeks.  Slideshows of the work of modern and contemporary artists will supplement the meetings.  This class is intended as a springboard for your own artistic practice, rather than as an introduction to anatomy or a specific method of working; however, beginners are welcomed and encouraged!  A computer, laptop, or large-screen tablet is advisable for Zoom meetings, as adequately viewing the model on a smartphone screen poses a challenge. 

An additional model fee of $25 will be paid to the model directly. 

The class schedule is as follows:

Date:   10/7: Speed collages with the model (short poses and limited “palette” of collage papers).

Date:   10/14: Portrait collages with the model (learning to edit and simplify).

Date:   10/21: Group discussion of work made during weeks 1 and 2.

Date:  10/28: Paper & cardboard collages with the model (breaking out of the rectangle).

Date:   11/4: Paper & cardboard constructions with the model (thinking in three dimensions).

Date:   11/11: Group discussion of work made during weeks 4 and 5.

OUTDOOR WORKSHOP 1: Outdoors with Fall Colors! Painting with Charlie Shurcliff

ONE DAY WORKSHOP

Wednesday, October 15, 2020

10AM - 4:00PM

Artist: Charlie Shurcliff

OUTDOORS WITH FALL COLORS!

We will paint outside in the wind and sun, in among the colors of autumn. Our location is nearby in Concord and will offer ample choice of subjects as well as room to spread out. Our goal is simply to try and make something from what we see -- whether straight depiction, abstract, or somewhere in-between. It is a chance to get outside and explore and loosen up, a chance to concentrate on colors and color relations and, as ever, the sense of light and aliveness of the real world.

This workshop is for experienced painters. While oil and acrylic are preferred, all mediums are fine. Bring enough canvasses for quick studies and larger paintings. Bring lunch and water, and gear for sun and wind and whatever the weather. The specific location and directions will be emailed prior to the workshop. Public restrooms will be available on site.

All safety protocols will be observed. Students and Teacher will wear masks at all times and keep a safe distance from each other.

Rain date will be 24 hours later, weather permitting, or as otherwise decided by Concord Art.

OUTDOOR WORKSHOP: Small Format Landscape Painting and Drawing with Kathleen Jacobs

OUTDOOR WORKSHOP:  SMALL FORMAT LANDSCAPE PAINTING & DRAWING with Kathleen Jacobs

Outdoor Plein Air Weekend Workshop at Grounding Stone Farm, New Hampshire

ALL MEDIUMS

Kathleen Jacobs

 

Working outdoors, students will investigate, record and hone their observational skills.  You will work intuitively to explore and consider line, form and the distinctive colors that exist in this beautiful part of the world.  Students will take simple hikes around the Grounding Stone Farm property.  Small sketches will help students to understand a simplified sense of space and compositional structure -- without over analysis of detail.  There will be an emphasis on drawing form and structure to seek a certain compositional grace and order from nature.  Working small, participants will draw and paint quickly. All skill levels welcome.  Any medium welcome; including oil, watercolor, acrylic or gouache, charcoal, etc.  Protocols to protect you and fellow students will be in place; students will be working outdoors.   All participants must wear masks and keep at a safe distance from each other.

ZOOM meeting starts at 10:00 am

MEDIUM: PRINTMAKING

The white line woodcut, also known as the Provincetown Print, is a uniquely American form of printmaking, invented by artists working in Provincetown in the early 1900s. In this method, beautiful multicolor prints are printed by hand using a single block, eliminating the need for a press or complicated registration methods. This fun workshop offers the opportunity to learn traditional techniques of design, carving, and printing, as well as the chance to expand upon the tradition with creative inking and printing options, to create contemporary interpretations of the medium. Participants will leave with a number of prints, and with newfound skills and appreciation of the process.

ONLINE: NOT KNOWING II: Things You Can Practice While You Don't Know How To Paint with Ron Krouk

ARTIST: Ron Krouk

FIVE-WEEK CLASS
Thursdays, October 29 - December 3 (no class November 26)
10:00am – 1:00pm

Virtual weekly online class on Thursdays starting October 29

A real-time class through Zoom video meeting that starts at 10AM.

MEDIUM: CHARCOAL and OIL or ACRYLICS

ALL LEVELS WELCOME

This class will meet ONLINE via ZOOM MEETING.  Ron will send an invitation in advance of join the ZOOM meeting/class and he will be there live during your three hour online class.

Usually, we like to know what we are doing but in painting, we don’t.  But that doesn’t mean we can’t be learning. This 3 hour class includes drawing and painting from a model (working live from home) and from still life.  The focus is not on product but on practice, observation and approaches to drawing FOR a painting.  We’ll use a combination of slide show, lecture or demo and guided practice to address some of the challenges we all have in telling observational truth while intelligently simplifying.  We’ll look at the group’s work and conclude with an assignment to be started in class but completed during the week.   It’s to everyone’s benefit to include many different experience levels.  At times part of the class will look in on a demo while others go right to work.   Model fee is included in price.

ONLINE CLASS: The Not-So-Still Life
 A Real-Time Class With Zoom 

Artist: NANCY GRUSKIN

MEDIUM:  COLLAGE, DRAWING, PAINTING & PAPER AND CARDBOARD SCULPTURE

FIVE-WEEK CLASS

Tuesdays, 10 am to 1 pm EST

November 3 - December 1, 2020

When is a still life not so still?  When it moves into three dimensions and is capable of infinite change.  This five-week class will begin with students constructing their own arrangement of objects from simple materials like paper, cardboard, masking tape and glue.  These 3D objects will serve as an ever-changing springboard for drawings, collages and paintings.  Exercises will focus on playing with form, color and composition.  We will see how far we can push our work, feeling unconstrained by trying to faithfully reproduce “real life” objects.  Slide shows of the work of modern and contemporary artists will supplement the exercises.  Our first four zoom video meetings will consist of teacher demonstrations, group discussions, slide shows and some independent work time.  You will be free to continue to work on exercises at your own pace and on your own schedule outside scheduled zoom meetings.  Our fifth and final zoom video meeting will consist of a group discussion of some of the work produced by students during the previous four weeks.

Beginning November 3, 2:00pm – 4:00pm

ZOOM MEETING STARTS AT 2pm

ONLINE CLASS: Serial: The Artist's Practice

Through guided exercises and prompts, we'll learn to focus our vision as artists by working in a series. Nonrepresentational imagery will be our means to exploring painting, drawing and printing techniques. We'll create several series of related works on paper while learning how to quiet the inner judge by placing our focus on process, not product.

8" x 10" gel plate

4" soft rubber brayer

ONLINE CLASS: Beginning Drawing From Observation with Jane Goldman

INSTRUCTOR: Jane Goldman

ONLINE CLASS: Beginning Drawing from Observation

FIVE-WEEK CLASS 

Thursdays, November 5- December 10 (no class November 26)

1:30pm – 4:30pm

ZOOM MEETING STARTS AT 1:30pm

Beginning drawing is a nuts and bolts approach to observational drawing, addressing the fundamentals of how to draw what you see.  Drawing what you see, not what you know, requires focus on the present moment and letting go of memory.  The experience of looking is equally important as what appears on the paper.

This class covers materials, doodling, mark-making, contour and gesture drawing, value, perspective, composition and scale.  We will also spend time analyzing masterful drawings.

MATERIALS LIST

Set of 12 Drawing Pencils with Assorted Hardness from 6B-6H

Sharpie Fine Point Marker - Black, Pkg of 2

Large Kneaded Eraser

Support Drawing Board  (Blick Sketch Pad Board 23"x26")

Sketchbook 9"x12", Wire Bound 80 Sheets

Blick's All Media Paper, 2 Sheets of 15"x22" and 2 Sheets of 22"x30"

ONLINE WORKSHOP: COLLAGE LETTERS with Alexandra Sheldon

ONLINE/ZOOM WEEKEND WORKSHOP

THREE-DAY WORKSHOP
November 6 - November 8

10:00am - 2:30

Live ZOOM Meeting starts at 10 am

Artist: Alexandra Sheldon

COLLAGE LETTERS

MEDIUM: Mixed Media

Collage letters are two sided small format collages to send to a friend. Think of them as visual poems or Valentines. You can have a lot of materials (see list below) or just a glue stick and some old books to cut up. 

I like to use images and painted papers, paint, magazines, old travel guides or defunct art books. Used, flattened and dried tea bags are great as are any transparent papers like tissue or deli. Make no mistake: collage letters feel light and fun to make but we will also cover some important lessons in composition and the history of mail art. Have real stamps on hand and if you venture out to a post office buy some fun and beautiful ones! Collage Letters will lead you in interesting directions almost by magic so be ready to make silly, heartfelt, political, heartbroken and weird letters. It’s always an adventure to make art 
    

·      Water based paints like acrylics, gouaches or watercolors

·      Assortment of brushes

·      Plastic scraper or old credit card for collaging stuff flat

·      Papers found in a recycle bin like envelopes, paper bags, receipts, cereal boxes, cardboard

·      Pens, pastels, sharpies, colored pencils, water soluble pastels, charcoal, pencils, paint pens or ball point pens

·      Ruler, sponge, water, paper plates, newspaper, magazines, trace paper, sketch paper, newsprint, any type of Bristol paper or mixed media sketchbook paper

·      Mixed media sketchbook, any size

·      Glue sticks or acrylic matte medium (I prefer Utrecht matte medium, available online from Blick Art)

·      It would be hard to take my class without some basic white and black paint and I do suggest getting a set of acrylics paints (Golden Acrylics are excellent). However, I am seeing some pretty fabulous stuff from people with very little materials on hand.

ONLINE WORKSHOP: Watercolor for Absolute Beginners with Marjorie Glick

This is an Online Workshop with Marjorie Glick

WATERCOLOR FOR ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS (ZOOM)

November 13-15, 2020

Friday- Sunday: 10AM - 3:30PM

Unlike most watercolor workshops, this one will start at the very beginning!

This workshop is geared towards the absolute beginner and will prepare you for future watercolor classes.

We will begin with learning the basic techniques of color mixing, wash, wet into wet, edge shading and building an image using transparent layering.

You will also develop an understanding and appreciation of how water is used in watercolor.

Water is everything: it is used to create paint movement, spontaneous expression as well as control, and transparency.

Learn how to use value to build up an image spatially and with light and shadow.

Note: if you are not a beginner, you are welcome to take this class as a refresher course but we start at the beginning with basics.

1 hour zoom sessions will alternate between real time demos,practice time and Q and A. We will take frequent breaks to stay fresh.

The class will be structured as follows:

10 AM- 11:00AM :1 hour demo of watercolor concepts/strategies and discussion of work in progress and student goals for the week.

11:00- 12 Painting on your own with individual consults as needed

12-1 Break for lunch

1-2:30- New demo, Q and A

2:30-3:30 Practice painting on your own

Breaking Through to Fearless Abstraction

Moving beyond representational image making can be daunting. This workshop will provide liberating strategies to help evolve your work particularly if you have reached the point of “now what?”. Through a series of drawing and collage exercises we will experiment, pushing beyond habitual image making, exploring new fearless options for picture making in any medium. This exploratory workshop will deepen your artistic process and reveal new directions and inspirations. All levels of experience welcome.
